How could it be otherwise? Everything you know about this universe; every bit of data processed by any of your five senses; every memory you have; every idea; every belief; every conclusion you ever draw about anything; even every voluntary bodily movement (and many involuntary ones)...
... is merely a process of your consciousness. Your mind creates your entire reality.
[smile] My dear Godot, I am acquainted with that concept as well, and am increasingly convinced of it. My point is that if the afterlife is also a figment of my imagination, than my dead Uncle Joe's experience of the afterlife is of no import to what mine will be. So I do not see any point in consulting a medium for information from dear Uncle Joe, or reading Uncle Joe's testimony of his momentary sojurn in *his* afterlife.
In fact, if I want to know what *my* afterlife will be like, the best way is probably to make my life *now* more to my liking.
